I clicked "get paid now" on the 10th, when I received an email on the 11th, saying, Expected date of delivery: 16th. Yes, 12th is Saturday and 13th is Sunday, but why do I have to wait till the 16th for the payment to be sent?
Or do they imply that they have sent the money already, and the 5 days are required for the money to get to my bank?
I've checked and your withdrawal was successful from our end, so the payment has already been initiated. The timing you're referring to pertains to the number of times it takes for the funds to make it into your bank account. Usually it can take up to 4 business days and can be delayed by holidays in the U.S or in your country.

I havent received any payment process confirmation email and its been 2 days already
In that case you withdrew to a bank account during the weekend, and withdrawals to bank accounts are not processed at weekends.
Can anyone tell me. What If client wants to approve payment request right after they accepts the contract. Can it cause any issue? Or there should be some delay in accepting contract and approving payment request. My some clients trust me and wants to approve payment request right after they accept the contract.
And can we use our upwork account only for direct contracts?
Is there any limit to withdraw payment twice or thrice in a day?
When a client releases a milestone payment, it goes through a 5-day security period, and will show under the Pending tab of your Overview page (Reports > Overview). During the 5-day security period, it gives the system time to process and clear the payments. Please read this article for more information about Fixed-Price Protection. Thank you!
